RBP: Add GL symlinks to toolchain #606

Pushing this as an alternative to #605.

On RPi the libEGL/libGLESv2 libraries are now called libbrcmEGL/libbrcmGLESv2. This breaks addons that expect to link against libEGL/libGLESv2.

The background for the renaming is in this change: raspberrypi/firmware#625 (comment).

This PR will create sym links in the toolchain that will allow RPi builds to appear "normal" as far as libEGL/libGLESv2 are concerned, allowing untouched addons to build against these libraries (that are just symbolic links to the real things - libbrcm*).

We already include sym links in the image for libEGL/libGLESv2, to libbrcm*, these are intended for backward compatibility but while we ourselves continue to link against libEGL/libGLESv2 they will always be required.

With #605 we would at least be linking against the correct libbrcmEGL/libbrcmGLESv2 libraries - this is really the biggest difference between the two solutions, however while we continue to include the sym links for libEGL/libGLESv2 in the image, it's probably only a very minor benefit.

Push this PR or #605, they're both valid changes.
